Page 5 footnote: "In the old Hebraic language 'Malach Hamoves' means Angel of Death -- in other words a sort of diabolical enemy that attacks the spirit after the body is entombed". From page 6: "Byron lived in an age prolific of literary genius -- likewise an age prolific of literary critics. Both he and Shelly -- foremost among the poetic geniuses of their generation -- were actually driven into exile by the criticism and obloquy heaped upon them by persons who were as incapable of interpreting their true natures as they were of appreciating their works."
